3D Printing Service
3D printing is taking the world by storm but the question that seems to still surface is: how exactly does it work?! Without diving too deep into the subject, 3D printing works by adding material on top of itself, layer by layer, until a full 3D model is built from the ground up. Think of building a tiered cake, except each layer is thinner than a human hair follicle, and not as tasty!
In the world of 3D printing, there are numerous types of printing processes that are used. Here at Source Graphics, we use an advanced technology called Stereolithography, or otherwise simply known as SLA. SLA 3D printing works by curing a liquid resin material with specific wavelengths of UV light. The UV light solidifies (or chemically hardens) the liquid resin and builds models layer by layer. As a result of this process, 3D models are more robust, heavily detailed, and longer lasting as compared to other 3D printing processes.
So the next question is, how do you get started? All you need to do on your end is two things: save your 3D CAD design in STL FORMAT and give it to us. Simple as that. Once your STL FORMAT file has been received, our 3D Printing Specialists will examine them for quotation. Once a STL FORMAT file has been received, we'll have an update for you within 24 hours.
